When people smoke weed, they might notice the plant’s cannabinoids, or psychoactive compounds, more so than its other components like terpenes. Terpenes are aromatic chemicals that give cannabis and other plants their fragrance. Often, the same terpenes are shared among different organisms — take for instance myrcene, a terpene found in both cannabis and mangoes. While new cannabis consumers might not notice the plant’s terpenes as much when they smoke, connoisseurs are well aware of them and can determine a lot about a strain based on how it smells.
However, now even novice consumers can get a taste of the plant’s terpenes with a new kind of smoking mechanism: the Twisty Glass Blunt. Made from glass and brass, the blunt circumvents the need for rolling papers and can hold up to a gram and a half of ground up weed.
All you need to do is fill the glass container with weed and make sure the bud wraps around the screw in the middle. The twisty shape of the screw nearly doubles the length of the route the smoke must travel through to get to your mouth. By doing so, the smoke also cools by almost a third of its temperature. The blunt can also stay burning for several hours, which means it’s almost always cherry.
Moreover, you can smoke the blunt by itself, or insert it into a bong to increase the taste and decrease the temperature of your smoking experience. Without paper, you’ll be able to more easily taste and smell the cannabis’ flavor.
Look who got herself a new #twistyglassblunt 💚 Just came in and I already packed it! Hopefully this one doesn't fall and break #fingerscrossed . .. . #Smokette 💋💨 . .. … #cannabiscommunity #cannabismovement #legalizeit #420 #hightimes #maryjmaidens #maryjane #weed #blunt #smokeweed #puffpuffpass #justblazeig #somegirlsgethigh #stonergirl #420everyday #wedontsmokethesame #HighSociety #kush
When you’re finished smoking, all you have to do is unscrew the blunt and the screws will push the ash out from the end.
For a clean, tidy, and pure smoking experience, the blunt and the materials it’s made of offer an opportunity to more fully experience the bud, without the harshness of smoke heat or the burning of rolling papers. This can be particularly useful if you’re trying to learn more about the nuances of cannabis strains and more fully notice their terpenes.
